Many cultures incorporate the story of Saint Nicholas (Santa Claus) into their family traditions at Christmas. However, not every family follows this tradition. To honor all parents, our role as Bible teachers is not to address (validate or invalidate) this tradition, but to redirect the children s focus to celebrating the gift of God s Son.

5 The God who comes near THE WORSHIP Supplies: Praise music (you may choose to sing favorite Christmas praise songs), optional: musical instruments, Advent wreath Teacher Tip: To help children identify time set aside for worship, designate a special corner or area for singing, collecting offering, and watching the worship illustration. Play Praise Time: Love the Lord Your God as children move to that designated area. Advent Wreath: An Advent Wreath is recommended for the four weeks of Advent. Four purple candles (traditional or battery-operated) are suggested, but use the candle colors familiar to you. You may choose to include a center Christ candle. To prepare for the lighting of the Christmas candles, light the first two candles on the Advent wreath. When Jesus was born, all of heaven and earth praised God. We can praise God through prayer right now. Have the children bow their heads and close their eyes. Dear God, we praise You for who You are and all You have done for us. This Christmas season we remember how You sent Your Son, Jesus, to us as a baby. Amen. Sing: Sing Praises. God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to save the world. Let s sing while we give our offering. Sing: His One and Only Son while collecting the offering. The Lighting of the Christmas Candles: The Bethlehem Candle We light the Christmas candles to get our hearts ready to celebrate Christmas. Last time, we lit the Angel s candle and Mary s candle. Today, we light our third candle, the Bethlehem candle. It reminds us that Jesus the Savior was born in Bethlehem. Choose a child to assist in lighting the third candle. The candle lighting takes place during the performance of The Adventures of Delbert & Lello puppet script or after reading the storybook version. Before we light the candle, let s hear from Delbert and Lello. Perform The Adventures of Delbert and Lello puppet script or read storybook: God of Wonders Unit 10, Lesson 50. If you read the storybook, light the candle now. The angels praised God when Jesus was born. Glory to God in the highest! they sang. Glory to God in the highest means we give our biggest and highest praise and thanks to God. Let s practice our Bible Memory Verse together. Practice with the motions. Glory Hold palms together.

6 Jesus was born in a manger THE WORD Supplies: Teacher s Bible with bookmark at Luke 2:7, picture of the Bible story, baby doll wrapped in a blanket Before we begin our Bible Time, let s say our Classroom Promise with the motions. With my eyes on my teacher; Point to eyes. My mouth quiet as can be, Place index finger over mouth as quiet sign. I will listen to hear, Cup hand around ear. How God loves you and me. Hug self, point to others, and then self. Let s reach deep in our pockets and pull out our listening ears. Reach in your pocket and cup your hands behind your ears as if listening. Hold the baby on your lap. Shh! The baby is sleeping. Once the children are quiet, continue in a whisper. Baby Jesus was born in a stable, which is like a barn. Do you think it was quiet in the stable? (No.) Let s pretend we are the animals in the stable. Divide the class into three groups and assign each group an animal such as a cow, pig, or sheep. On the count of three, I want you to make the noise your animal makes Children make the animal sounds for a few moments. Was that very quiet? (No.) Let s find out why baby Jesus was born in a stable. Handle Bible as a special treasure, leaving it open to Luke 2:7. WATCH THE WORD: LUKE 2:1-7 Read the story below or retell the passage in your own words. To illustrate the story, show a picture of the Bible story from a children s Bible, the coloring page, or other source. Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem town. They went there for it was Joseph s hometown. They arrived after traveling for a very long while. Soon it was time to have Mary s first child. He was born in a manger in Bethlehem; For there was no room for them in the inn. Mary wrapped baby Jesus in swaddling clothes, And lay Him in the manger the place that God chose. To what city did Mary and Joseph travel? (Bethlehem.) Where did Jesus mother put Him when He was born? (In a manger.) Page 6 of 11

7 God came near to us through baby Jesus THE WAY Teacher Tip: Craft and games can be presented at the same time in different areas or one at a time depending on class size and teaching style. CRAFT: BABY JESUS ORNAMENT Purpose: To know Jesus was born in a manger. Supplies: Baby Jesus template for Ages 2-3 (available at ResourceWell.org), sturdy white paper, light blue felt for swaddling cloth (may substitute paper or fabric), label, glue, crayons Prepare: Print and cut out the baby Jesus template and the label ( A Savior has been born. ) from sturdy white paper. Punch a hole in the top of the cut out. Cut out a piece of light blue fabric for swaddling cloth. Adaptation for Ages 2-3: This craft has been adapted from the curriculum for ages 4-5. Optional: Cut out baby Jesus and provide an oval of felt or fabric for children to glue the cutout onto for the ornament. 1. Before or after the children decorate Mary, thread the yarn through the hole in the top of the ornament and tie the ends together for a hanger. 2. Color baby Jesus. 3. Glue the fabric onto the baby Jesus cut-out for swaddling cloth. Craft Discussion: Baby Jesus was laid in a stable manger. Who remembers what a manger is? (Big box that holds food for the animals.) How was baby Jesus first bed and first outfit different from most babies? (He was wrapped in cloth instead of a baby blanket. He was laid in a manger instead of a crib or basket.) Page 7 of 11

8 THE WAY continued GAME: ACT IT OUT Purpose: To remember the details of Jesus birth by acting out the story. Supplies: Jesus in a manger (baby doll wrapped in cloth in box with straw, hay, or shredded paper), stable (sheet or blanket), costumes for Mary, Joseph, and the Innkeeper (pillowcases with the sides cut open and a slit in the top for the head, bathrobes or shawls, strips of cloth or ropes for belts) Let s imagine what it was like to be there when the Savior was born! 1. Set-up The Inn: Place two chairs with a space between for the inn. The Stable: Lay a sheet on the floor for the stable. Set the manger (without Jesus) on the sheet. Keep baby Jesus separate. Assign the roles of Innkeeper, Mary and Joseph. Distribute costumes, if available. The remaining children can be the stable animals: sheep, oxen, sheep dogs, cows, donkeys, etc. The Innkeeper stands next to the door of the inn. Mary and Joseph stand away from the inn and stable. The animals sit on the sheet (the stable) around the manger. 2. Lead the children in retelling the story below (Luke 2:1-7) as they act it out. Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem. (Mary and Joseph walk slowly toward the inn.) When they arrived, they asked for a place to stay. But, the innkeeper told there was no room. (Mary and Joseph ask if there is room. The Innkeeper tells them there is no room.) Finally, they found a stable. It didn t smell very good and the animals were noisy. (Mary and Joseph walk to the stable. The animals make noise.) When Jesus was born, His mother, Mary, wrapped him in cloths and laid Him in the manger. (Give baby Jesus to Mary. Mary wraps Him and places Him in the manger.) Jesus birth was good news! 3. As time allows, play again, switching roles among the children. GAME: ANIMAL WALK Purpose: To remember the animals that would have been in the stable. Supplies: Christmas music Jesus was born in a stable. Let s pretend to be some of the animals that may have been in the stable. 1. Children follow behind you in a line. 2. Choose an animal such as a cow, pig, sheep, chicken, or donkey. What sound does a name of animal make? When the music starts, let s walk around the room and pretend to be a name of animal. When the music stops, I want you to freeze. Don t move and don t make a sound. 3. Have a helper play the music. Periodically stop the music and have the children freeze in place. Each time you restart the music, choose a different animal. You may choose the same animal more than once or allow the children to choose their own animals to act out. Page 8 of 11

9 THE WAY continued SNACK: MANGER MUNCHIES Purpose: To remember Jesus birth. Snack Suggestion: Any fruit, sugar cubes, or granola (foods that donkeys might enjoy) 1. Serve snack and drink. 2. Let s sing the Blessing Song. Sing to the tune of Frere Jacques or another familiar tune. God our Father, God our Father. Once again, once again, Thank You for our blessings. Thank You for our blessings. Amen. Amen. 3. Lead discussion below while children enjoy their snack. Today, our snack reminds us of food a donkey would eat. Along with hay, this is the kind of food that would be in a manger. A manger is a box that holds the food for stable animals. Do you have any pets? (Children respond.) What do your pets eat? (Children respond.) Do they eat from a bowl or from a manger? (Children respond.) Joseph and Mary had a long journey to Bethlehem. Have you ever taken a long trip? (Children respond.) Where did you go? (Children respond.) Who went with you? (Children respond.) Where did you stay? (Children respond.) How was your trip the same as Mary and Joseph s trip? (Children respond.) How was it different? (Children respond.) When only 5 minutes remain, begin this segment.
